Language of extremism- the tip of Darwin's sword
Darwin has used the language of extremism thought out his work " on the origin of species". This type of language has served him extremely well in term of promoting his theory of evolution through natural selection to the general public. The nature of extremism leaves no room for ambiguity and doubts. It carries such a punch that enable Darwin to shock him reader with his idea and force them to over throw whatever they used to believe. I personally think he has done a great job on using such language to allow him to obtain popularity among scholars as well as general public. He has certainly achieve his objective which is to be the first one to publish the theory and make it sounds as striking as possible.
